Studies: Social Distancing Is Good For Health, But Social Isolation Isn't

2020-05-22 05:29:49

It's well known that social distancing can help stop the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19. But according to UPI, two new studies reveal social isolation may have the opposite effect and also lead to other health problems. The studies show that socially isolated people are nearly 50 percent more likely to die from any cause. What's more, older isolated people, especially those in residential nursing homes, are at much higher risk for the often life-threatening illness. Many families have stopped visiting nursing homes because older adults are at increased risk. Also, facilities have become common sites for outbreaks. Having strong social relationships is of high importance for your heart health. Study co-author Janine Gronewold University Hospital in Essen, Germany
